You can support UNICEF’s emergency relief operations around the world and help us respond quickly to children in distress by donating to our Children's Emergency Fund.
As soon as it becomes clear a humanitarian response is needed, we are able to use your donations to the fund. This is one way in which we help ensure that children in distress are assisted as soon as possible. We also use this fund to support emergencies that occur ‘silently’, that is without much attention, perhaps because they are ongoing or because there is currently no media focus.
Whether it is a drought, conflict or an earthquake, UNICEF provides life-saving supplies such as health kits, food and shelter to populations in need. We focus on the needs of children in times of disaster, whether this is for child protection, clothing or education, and work to meet their needs rapidly.
